Chairman of the Gulf Park Board
of Trustees said: "The Board of
Trustees is grateful to Mr. Gibson
for the efficient service which he

the whole field of education, es-
pecially in the South, as well as
He leaves Gulf Park with our
friendliest regard and best wishes.
During their years on the Coast,
Mr. and Mrs. (Jibson have both

Mr. Gibson's letter announcing

Mr. Harold Barber, President
Board of Trustees
Gulf Park College
Dear Mr. Barber:
At the end of the year, I shall
have completed the three-year con-
tract between your Board and my-
self. At our last meeting, we dis-
cussed, and the Board approved,
my request that I be allowed to re-
tire on July I as President of Gulf

In announcing my retirement
from this position, there are some
things that I should Hke to say:
First, let mc thank the Board
for its support, cooperation, and
cordial good will. It is made up
of leading citizens of the Coast who
are wholly devoted to Gulf Park
Second, I want to express my
sincere gratitude to the members
of the faculty and the staff of the
College for their dedicated services.
We have worked together in com-
plete understanding. The work of
every member of the faculty and
staff has seemed to me to be tre-
mendously important and has been
deeply' appreciated. Nor, would I
overlook the men in our excellent
maintenance department and the
other loyal wage employees of the
Third, I express sincere regarcf
and concern for the students — the
several hundred girls who are,
after all, the ultimate reason for the
College to exist. It has been a priv-
ilege to have the over-all direction
of the continuing education of these
fine young women at the junior col-
lege level who are in such an im-
portant period of their li\es.
Finally, it has been, and is, a
pleasure to Mrs. Gibson and me to
live here and have the friendship
of so many leading people of the
After retirement from Gulf Park,
I shall have time to continue and
have a larger part in the work of

cation, Inc., a private enterprise
corporation of which I am a part-
We still have one semester to go
in the 1960-61 academic year. I
will, of course, continue to devote
my best energies to the office of
President of the College. More-
over, I will assist and facilitate in
every professional way the transi-
tion from my administration to
that of my successor, whoever he

Christmas Banquet Is
Colorful Holiday Fete
The annual Christmas Banquet
was the perfect beginning for the
holiday season. Decorations were
presented in a magnificent array
of colors that transformed the
dining room into a picture of holi-
day spirit. In the back of the dining
room was a very large and beau-
tiful Christmas tree that glistened
from top to bottom. For center-
pieces, miniature Christmas trees
were placed on mirrors that added
twice as much spirit to the gala
event. The buffet was adorned with
large magnolia leaves that were
frosted, with red candles scattered

"Then and Now" Is Theme Fo
Annual January Spring Fashion
Theme for the style revue was
Then and Now with the stage
setting depicting a costume of tht
2o's and one of the 1961 season.
As each group of styles was pre-
sented, a student wearing its coun-
terpart from Mrs. O'Neal's collec-
tion of 1920 dresses, appeared on
the stage to set the pace for the
Taking the cue from the Then
and Now theme, the Gulf Park
College Ensemble, under the direc-
tion of Mrs. Estelle Archer, en-
tertained at intermission with a
group of 1920 songs. The girls,
dressed in clothes of that era, took
on the mannerisms and fads of the
flapper period, much to the delight
of the audience which expressed its
approval by laughter, applause and
Music for the show was by a
trio from the New Orleans Phil-
harmonic: Russel Bobrowski, vio-
linist; Hal Runyan, cellist; and
Jack Yates, pianist.
Using the new color, sunset
orange, the stage setting featured
a large spool of orange thread with
needle, brass loops holding draped
sewing material in this same color,
and white wicker containers of
flowers in this same shade.
Play clothes, suits, street clothes,
cocktail and after five ensembles
and formals were modeled for the

Vibrant colors, combined with
vibrant but contrasting colors, such
as shocking pink with sunset orange,
pale pink with red, blue with green,
orange with yellow, pink, red and
green, seemed the dominant trend
for the 1961 clothes.
Blacks, dark blues, browns and
beiges also featured contrasting
blouses or accessories to highlight
the always popular basic colors for
all-occasion costumes. Blacks were
combined with browns and beiges,
or with bright prints.
Materials ran the gamut from the
"one hundred per cent silk", with
the in-between-materials combining
cotton, silk, linen and the new
synthetic materials for drip dry
Materials were rich and luxurious,
even for play and leisure clothes,
and brought back the elegance of
the mi-lady look at the 1890 period
rather than the 1920.
Day-time dresses were short, most
of them coming to mid-knee. Cock-
tail and late wear dresses were
short to mid-calf, while evening
gowns went all formal with floor-
length belled or bouffant skirts.
Accessories were also much in the
fashion picture, with the many
strand necklaces and bracelets used
to pick up or contrast the colors of
the costume being worn. Silk scarfs,
chiffon and straw hats, pearlized
calf bags and shoes and multi-color-
ed cloth bags and shoes and kid
gloves proved the most popular ad-
ditions to complete the attire.

are quick to make a girl, a girl of

to be feminine.
They do this in innumerable ways

Jet Maskers December
The Imaginary Invalid, a play
by Moliere, was presented by the
Jet Maskers December 8 and 9 in
The cast included the following:
Sam S t a 1 1 o n, Sali Burch, May
Frances I'Anson, Stephanie Pitts,
James Lynes, Lloyd Burland, Tom
Brasseur, Ronald McCrum, Linda
Gray, David Bowers, Frank Her-
man, and Dan Dyvig.
The play was a spoof on 17th
century doctors and their patients.
Sam Statton played the "Invalid"
with his exceptional flair for acting
so that the audience howled with
laughter at the hilarious caricature
Argan, as was his name, was al-
ways calling on doctors for their
advice and medications. Once re-
ceived, Argan was sure of their
impotence. Prior to the time of
the play's action he had called on
every doctor in Paris for one reason
His nurse, Toinette, was played
by Sali Burch, substituting for Betty
Brite. She portrayed a delightfully
amusing Toinette v/ho was wise to
Argan's tactics and tolerated his
complaints only with a skeptical

Trampoline, Bowling New
P. E. Sports Activities
Exam time again rolls around
and the familiar cry of "What are
you taking for P. E. and at which
period.''" fills the air.
This year two new and exciting
sports have been added to the Phy-
sical Education curriculum. One is
bowling, ofiered for a Monday after-
noon of entertainment and the
other, a new sport that is growing
in popuarity all over the United
States — the trampoline.
About two weeks before the be-
ginning of the second quarter one
could see a large white mat being
smuggled into the Physical Educa-
tion Equipment House, and then
"Boom!" Everyone was signing up
to take this challenging sport. In-
stead of the once familiar cry it
was "Are you taking trampoline .''",
and for those who said "yes" came
the reply, "I'll probably break my
neck." Such terms as the "swivel
hips", "cradle", "tuck", and "check"
became part of many Gulf Park
girls" vocabularies when referring
to trampoline antics as they com-
peted with their classmates during
class hours and after school, each
one trying to perfect one specific
stunt, and then taking on another.
The second quarter found five,
full bouncing classes; four taught
by Miss Morgan, and one by Miss

ticipating in this activity as well as

a willingness to learn and a sincere
The enthusiasm shown by stu-
dents in attempting this sport, new
to Ciulf Park's campus, insures the
fact that it will soon be a popular
as well as successful addition to our

Winners of the "Crepe Paper Pair Class" at the annual Gym-
khana were Judy Hull, left, and Drucilla Jones, right.
Starting off the program was the
"Bareback Chip Class." The bare-
back rider had to hold an object
between her horse and her knee,
at a walk, trot, and a canter. Susan
Shaver was the winner of this
The second class was the Corn
Cob Race in which the riders had
to trot to opposite ends of the ring
from the starting line, dismount,
pick up a corn cob, re-mount, and
return to the starting line where
they repeatedly tossed the cobs into
a barrel. Carolyn Ray Campbell
took the honors in this activity.
The "Crepe Paper Pair Class"
followed next. Dru Jones and Judy
Hull succeeded in winning this
honor after ha\'ing ridden the long-
est in a pair without tearing the
crepe paper that was tied to the
saddle of each of their horses.
Sarah Todd took first place in
the "Bat Race." In this event the
challenge was to see which rider
could trot to the opposite end of
